When the company needed to take a step back and get everything in order, TNA decided to shut down their live events side of the business. Well, it looks like Dixie Carter and company are going to start dipping their toes into the water again. The company has officially booked an event in York, Pennsylvania. The date is September 17, 2015. There is still the possibility that the company will book other events before that one as well.

While doing a podcast interview with Steve Austin, Dixie Carter revealed that she has been involved with professional wrestling for much longer than people realized. Many are under the assumption that her career in the industry began when her family purchased the majority share of TNA. However, Dixie was actually a wrestling promoter back when she was in college. She even helped Jerry Lawler book a USWA live event.

Since they needed to focus on securing a deal with Destination America and getting talent to sign new contracts, TNA has not been able to work on reviving their struggling live events business. That should be changing soon, as management recently held a meeting to ensure to the performers that they will be back on the road soon enough. Company president Dixie Carter is aiming to do weekly live events again as soon as June or July.

Since the company now has a new television deal with Destination America, many fans are naturally wondering if TNA will be hitting the road soon and doing live events. As of right now, that is not in the plans by Dixie Carter and her staff. The goal is to build up the brand again through Impact Wrestling. Once they have enough momentum, then they will consider going back on the road to do house shows. Management wants to avoid losing money.
